Course update: Scenic Ridge (and the rest of the island) has been getting lots of rain. The island is so green and beautiful right now! There is, however, quite a bit of mud, and there are some BIG puddles.
Also, the start of the 50 mile race will be in the dark for the first hour plus. While the first several miles of the course are paved and in fairly good condition, there are significant portions that are unlit. So please bring a light.
If you have any questions in the coming days, don't hesitate to ask:
Thanks for choosing to race one of the St. Croix Scenic 50 events!
